at the Parapan Am Games
The Parapan American Games wrapped up on Sept. 1 and Saskatchewan athletes returned from the international event with one gold medal, four silvers and two bronze.
They include Erica Gavel of Prince Albert (pictured above), a member of the gold medal-winning women’s wheelchair basketball team, and swimmer Krystal Shaw of Moose Jaw, who won four medals.
This adds to the seven medals collected by Saskatchewan athletes at the last month’s Pan Am Games. Saskatchewan’s combined contingent within Team Canada at the Parapan Am and Pan Am Games included 16 athletes and six coaches. Three Saskatchewan officials were also appointed to the Parapan Am Games.
Congratulations to Team Canada. We are #SaskProud of everyone who represented Saskatchewan!
